geocaching Wood County Park DistrictWhat is geocaching?

Geocaching is the use of GPS technology to locate sites called caches. These caches may be a small box containing a log book hidden in a hollow tree stump or a “virtual” cache leading you to a site for an answer to a question.

There are millions active geocaches throughout the world. Check out Geocaching.com for a list of caches in Wood County.

The Wood County Park District is proud to take part in this modern day, free “treasure hunt” and has six official caches located in six different parks.

In addition to our Park District caches, there are many other privately placed caches (at least one in every park). These caches were placed by individuals who have completed a geocache permit and obtained permission by the Park District.  Click here to see a list of the public-owned certified geocaches within your Wood County Parks.

If you would like to hide a Geocache, please fill-out and submit a Park District Geocache Permit Application.

Practice “Cache In, Trash Out”. While out geocaching, bring a bag with you to pick up trash along the way!
